ATLANTA—IHG is planning multiple dual-branded hotel developments across the United States, with the first of them to open in Atlanta this week.
Owned by AWH Partners, LLC, and operated by Spire Hospitality, the 501-room Hotel Melia will convert to a Crowne Plaza hotel and will immediately undergo a total renovation, ultimately creating a 360-room Crowne Plaza hotel. By January 2016, the property will open within the same building a 102-room Staybridge Suites hotel.
Other development plans for dual-branded IHG hotels include a Holiday Inn and Candlewood Suites hotel for Joliet, IL, a Crowne Plaza and Staybridge Suites hotel for San Diego and an IHG-managed Hotel Indigo and Holiday Inn Express hotel for Austin, TX.
